Thirty five year old reboot.
My friend and I were discussing the other day how much more academically minded we were now that we were thirty.

How it was damn near impossible to do schoolwork when were in college because we were mostly trying to get laid.

And how it sucks because those early decisions led us to have a much harder adulthood now. And how it is so hard to recover from those decisions.

But what if instead of our society focusing on 18 year olds, how about thirty year olds?

Imagine if at thirty, if you met certain requirements - never had a felony, were sane, passed certain tests, etc. - you would be given a grant to go to school.

Imagine how much more likely those people would be to do well at school. To actually soak up the information. Because A - you actually understand how important the shit is... and B - while you still like to have sex and get drunk, you've probably done enough of both and have far fewer hormones so that you can focus on other things.

And then at the age of 35, 36, whatever, they come out of college with the relevant skills they need to help our nation.
And with the fresh education and life skills they have learned, they can go right into those essential mid-level jobs we need competent people in so badly.

Plus... it would give kids in their late teens and twenties a reason to keep their nose clean. If they new that if they did, when they turned thirty they would get great opportunities.

Just an idea.

But my God man, by the time most of us are Thirty we've started to truly figure out who we are and where we're heading.

To do this would stop Liberal Indoctrination in it's tracks.
